The High Load Tribometer is designed with high torque capability for loads from 0.5N to 500N. A large coated 20mm steel plate ensures stability and durability of the system. The high load system has been designed with a continuous stiff arm to ensure accuracy at these high loads. Friction is measured directly with a load cell directly in contact with the arm. This model offers high accuracy for applications with high loads and friction forces. See app note for testing example.

Scratch Adhesion Testing of Disc Coatings

In this study, instrumented scratch testing is used to assess the failure modes of the top layers of CD and BD. This test allows users to quantitatively compare the scratch resistance of different protective coatings.

Wear Evaluation by High Load Tribometer

The Macro Tribometer is designed with high torque capability for loads up to 500 N. In this study, we simulated and compared the wear behaviors of valve coatings under high loads to showcase the capacity of Nanovea Macro Tribom
eter in quantitatively evaluating the wear properties of materials such as wear rate and coefficient of friction.

Wear Evaluation by High Load Tribometer

Here are examples of materials we tested this month:

• Nanoindentation & Scratch of blank coins
• Nanoindentation of electroplated coating
Nanoindetation dma of epoxy adhesive coating

3D Non-Contact Profilometry:

• Roughness of tablet press punch
• Step height of titanium oxide films
• Dimensions of metal chamfered edge


• Wear testing of enriched teflon
• Wear testing of nylon composite

2015 Tradeshow Calender


The International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) is internationally recognized as the premier international conference focused on thin-film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface engineering. It brings together scientists, engineers, and technologists from academia, government laboratories, and industry, thereby merging cutting-edge research with real-world applications. The conference consistently draws more than 700 attendees each year within 37 oral technical sessions and a well-attended poster session. Learn more
